No. 4 WON WON OH FIVE: If you used this one in the picks you had to be sick. Ran his heart out as Talmo had him inside, outside and back inside. Once in gear he came storming down the lane just failing to catch the lone speed by a dwindling ¾ of a length. This one is a flat out runner who is in top form. A must use in all the exotics. $$$$$
No. 6 CHARM CATCHER: A first time starter for trainer Ron McAnally who rarely has one cranked up first out of the box. This filly bobbled at the start and was far back but looked like she wanted to run. Was pulling at her jockey Gomez to let her go, took to the inside, angled out past midstretch and surged between horses late for the place in an outstanding effort. Look for the Hall of Famer to send this girl long next time out. $$$
No. 4 MARY FILDES: The girl was set for a winning effort on the grass but the rains came and had to run on the goofy wet surface as the race was taken off the grass. She lagged last but put in a good late run finishing third. Will be in the winner’s in the very near future when she finds a turf race. $$$
No. 10 NONNA REESE: Was hot on the board in this race and came flying late, but the 2-1 winner had already snuck away. She will be hard to beat next time out.
